: another : DIY - Hand Soap Edition

My husband came home from work the other day and said it was official - he has become a soap snob!

I made our own soaps a few weeks ago and we are both obsessed with them. They smell amazing, they are cleaning our hands, they are nourishing our skin with oils, and they are HEALTHY for us, NO added fake fragrance.

Here is what you need -

You need a glass soap dispenser (I got a foaming one from Fred Meyer and its AMAZING), some unscented castile soap. I bought Dr. Bronners from Fred Meyer - here is the link on Amazon. You will also need whatever kind of liquid oil you are comfortable with. I used Sweet Almond oil in one and Fractionated Coconut oil in two others. Also you will need some Young Living pure essential oils - cleanest of clean oils with a Seed to Seal promise!

Here is your How To!

Add 2 tablespoons unscented castile soap to soap dispenser.
Add 1 teaspoon of either the sweet almond oil or fractionated coconut oil (you can also use grapeseed oil or avocado oil - but I haven't tried either of those yet).
Add 10-15 drops each of two essential oils of your choice (or 20-30 drops of one!). Stay away from oils that are pure citrus - they pull toxins out of the plastic pieces inside the pump really quickly!

I have used Thieves and Purification, Thieves and Peppermint (our favorite!) and Lavender.

Good luck! Have fun! If you want to learn more about how to get the oils, visit this page on my blog next!
